Instead I looked essentially north up the Pitt River Lake valley and found more than suitable substitutes. Doing a bit of hunting online, these mountain tops go by the names of Gloomy Peak, DeBeck Peak and Gabbro Mountain. Uneducated online guesses indeed.

Winter proves generally grey and gloomy on the wet, west coast. It’s a good time to travel to warmer climes.

Once in a while though, the clouds clear and the mountains emerge in their snowcapped glory… especially in the late afternoon as the sun sinks towards the western horizon.
